DUALSHOCK(R)3 Wireless Controller with Rumble Feature to be Introduced for Playstation(R)3

    TOKYO, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI)
 today announced that it would release DUALSHOCK(R)3 Wireless Controller, a
 new controller for PLAYSTATION(R)3 (PS3(R)) incorporating a rumble feature,
 in Japan in November as a separately sold accessory. It inherits the basic
 design and functionality of the popular PlayStation(R) controller, while
 keeping the high-precision, high response motion sensitive six-axis sensing
 system. Introduction to North American and European markets is expected in
 spring 2008.
     The added rumble feature, combined with the highly realistic motion
 sensitive six-axis sensing system, takes gamers deeper into the world of
 interactivity, delivering a more intuitive, realistic and immersive game
 play experience. The new controller will also benefit PS3 content creators,
 by giving them the ability to further expand their creative imagination.
 PS3 titles that are already in the market may become compatible with the
 rumble feature through software update.
     With DUALSHOCK 3 and the attractive lineup of PS3 titles incorporating
 the rumble feature, SCEI will introduce more new ways of enjoyment that can
 only be found on PS3, and will further redefine the world of entertainment.
